The 12 Best Things About Being a Beginning Writer

Always a good read!

Meg Dowell

1. All the ideas! Many writers struggle with the fear or dilemma that they have “run out” of ideas. One of the great things about being a beginner is that you haven’t had the chance to work on any of the many ideas in your head yet. Your workspace is fresh and your mind is clear and ready to imagine.

2. There are so many people and resources available to answer your “beginner” questions. The writing community loves to help newbies out, especially if they are not afraid to ask kindly for it.

3. Nobody knows who you are. Which means, within reason, you are free to express your opinions and practice good written communication. Even more importantly, writing to an audience of zero means you can make small mistakes and write not great material and have plenty of time to analyze and improve without judgment.
